526 Gonowabie Road, Crystal Bay, NV

Brilliantly designed by architect/owner to celebrate its lakefront views of Tahoe’s renowned Crystal Bay from virtually every room, this architectural rarity embraces its natural surroundings while infusing interior space with clean, contemporary alpine design, with rustic wood and stone accents throughout. Equaled by the home’s lovely aesthetics and majestic views, it is designed to maximize indoor and outdoor living, which offers more than 5,200 square feet of living space plus 750 square feet of attached outdoor decks. Elegant, natural materials transform every architectural detail into a celebration of style.

Cypress wood ceilings, lodge pole columns, copper sinks and finishes, German green stone countertops, and Solnhofen limestone flooring and wall detail lend warm, refined comfort to the home’s sophistication, as well as perfect complements to the views of the bay and surrounding mountain peaks. Three upper-level balconies offer beautiful outdoor living spaces, and comfortably flow from the home’s most popular interior gathering areas. The home’s spacious yet private landscaped lawn provides an ideal outdoor area for social gatherings as well as peaceful relaxation with breathtaking panoramic lake views. Arguably the homes piece de resistance is its sublime lakeside patio, which offers instant access to Crystal Bay, perhaps the most beautiful section of Tahoe. Nestled into the property’s exquisite terraced gardens, the expansive patio offers perhaps one of the finest vantage points on Lake Tahoe. With its ample space, sunny exposure and unobstructed views of the lake, outdoor living takes center stage amidst the home’s dedicated waterfront, which spans more than 100 feet. Equipped with 2 private buoys, the home offers boating enthusiasts true Tahoe bliss. Luxurious touches include an 800-bottle wine cellar, covered year-round BBQ area, heated driveway, natural gas generator capable of powering the entire house, elevator, separate entry guest house, and lakeside patio. Family and friends were a top consideration throughout the home’s construction; and its 5,207 square feet of spacious living area (including the main house and separate-entry guest house) offer a gathering place that balances luxury living with an active Tahoe lifestyle.

This home was named “House of the Week” by the Wall Street Journal.
